The simplest way to explain how IFP helps films and filmmakers is they make connections. Looking for a producer? Looking for financing? Wondering what to do with your finished film? Looking for feedback on a rough cut? That's what they're here for. Based in NYC (if you're an independent filmmaker in New York and you're not already an IFP member, get on that), IFP is doing a discount promotion on memberships until November 19th, which includes screenings of many of the best independent films of this year. The 20% off code "MEMB14" drops the price to $80 and includes 65+ screenings at IFP's Media Center screening room in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Not in NY? It also includes a one-year subscription to Filmmaker Magazine. I'll let them tell it:
